About Infant Hearing Loss

Children with hearing loss can learn to listen and talk!


hear ME now helps Maine children with hearing loss and their families every step of their journey to communicating in the hearing world.

  • If your baby has been diagnosed with hearing loss, you have options. Our goal is to provide parents with the tools you need to understand your child’s hearing loss, make informed choices about educational options and find the path that is right for your family.
  • Starting early is important because long before a baby begins to make sounds the auditory brain is building the language centers a child will need for life.

There’s a continuum of communication options for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Some families choose spoken language, while others choose exclusively signed language and there are also various combinations of spoken and signed languages.

hear ME now supports families who have chosen multiple communication options. We work with any family who desires our support.
